    • GAD Motors 950 hp GLC63 taking on K8 Strasse 1000 hp BMW F85 X5M, 900 hp Nissan GT-R, and a BMW F90 M5 in 1/2 mile drag races

      This Mercedes-AMG GLC63 built by GAD Motors is a stout performer. It better be considering it has the works from tuner GAD including a built motor, built transmission, and M177 turbo upgrade. Output is stated to be around 950 horsepower.


      You saw a GLC63 with this same GAD 950 package make easy work of a Ferrari 812 Superfast.

      This particular example though struggles a bit especially at the launch at least until the final race against the X5M. Every 60 foot is over 2.X except in the final run when it manages a 1.7X. It also is nowhere near the 9-second numbers GAD posted in the 1/4 mile.

      The GT-R crushes it in the first run but the GLC lets off:


      A stock F90 M5 is next and despite the bad start the GLC63 catches and passes:


      The GLC63 traps 5.9 mph higher at the 1/2 mile mark.

      The final run is against a K8 Strasse built BMW F85 X5M said to make 1000 horsepower.

      The 1/2 mile trap is not recorded for the X5M. It does run the quicker 1/2 mile but the GLC63 got the better launch and reaction time:


      While this GLC63 is not putting up the numbers of GAD's own car it is definitely doing well against some stout competition.
